Hello! How have you been? Today I am going to talk about making your workout personal. Those of you who know me, know that I am a Christian and my faith walk is a very big part of my life. Just like our relationship with God or any relationship in that matter, we make it personal. The same should be when it comes to our health and wellness, we should make it personal.
Those of you who know me, know that I grew up in Utica MS. Utica is where my mom was raised, my dad was raised in Pattison. When my dad retired from the Army, we settled in Utica. Growing up and with my dad being a Preacher and a Farmer, I did not appreciate having to work in the field during the Summer. You can't blame me! A girl who was used to being around the military life and moving to the country was a BIG culture shock. However, as an adult I appreciate my upbringing more and more each day.
Growing up, we were different than others because we did not sound Southern, I was told I sounded proper. My dad was one of those Preachers who believed women had to wear dresses all of the time. As a Christian adult and by studying the bible, I learned that God looks at the heart of man, not what I wear. I also learned that it's okay to be different and not everyone is going to like me because I am different. It equipped me for life and this is especially important as we live in a world where Social Media is based on likes and followers. I always share with others and my clients to always to true to themselves; always be true to YOU ❤️💕
In the fitness world, those who workout are different than those who do not workout. Some people feel they cannot workout without having a workout buddy. We lose when we do not make our health & wellness a priority, we lose when we do not make our health & wellness personal. We have to and should make a commitment to ourselves to be proactive about our health or if we have any underlying conditions, make a commitment to better our health. We need to make it a personal commitment for ourselves, not anyone else! When we make it a personal commitment, it's win-win across the board. If you do not believe me, take a look at MS stats:
